Seahawks | More two-tight end sets for Seattle

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 10:09:34 -0700

The Seattle Seahawks appear likely to use more two-tight end formats with TEs Jimmy Graham and Luke Willson on the team this season in offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell's system. TEs Anthony McCoy, Cooper Helfet and Rashaun Allen are also competing for spots. Graham will need to do more blocking for RB Marshawn Lynch than he's done in the past with the New Orleans Saints if the Seahawks go to more two-tight end formations. Injuries and New Orleans system rarely relied on Graham for blocking in the running game. "I know 3rd-and-10, 3rd-and-12, that's when I'm going to have to make my money," Graham said, "and that's when I'm going to have to be special for this team."

Fantasy Tip: It seems likely that Graham's production for fantasy owners will take a dip this year with Seattle. However, he can still be a TE1 for his owners if he's used often in third-and-long situations and in the red zone.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham preparing to block more

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 06:25:01 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham said the priority of blocking is on par with making receptions in his new offense. "It's very important for me to be a part of that here because that's about 75 percent of the offense here and if you have a back like (Marshawn Lynch), you want to be in there on those explosive runs and you want to be part of that," Graham said. "Third-and-10 is when I'm going to make my money, and that's when I'm going to have to be special for this team."

Fantasy Tip: Graham's numbers are expected to fall short of the astronomical years he had in New Orleans. However, he's still in the elite tier at the position and should continue to be a beast in the red zone. He probably shouldn't be taken in the first round this year, though.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to be used all over

Tue, 14 Jul 2015 09:27:26 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham will be used all over the field with Seattle like he was in New Orleans. "Yeah, we do that with a lot of our guys. We like to formation and move guys around for different reasons, and Jimmy will be definitely in that mix," offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said. "It's just another great playmaker. He can stretch the field, catch the ball, big target in the red zone, which will be huge for us. That may be one of the biggest things, just the size we have down there when things start to get tight."

Fantasy Tip: Graham and Rob Gronkowski are in a tier by themselves at the position. Graham might lose some luster because Seattle has been so driven on power running, and he may not have as many targets as he did in New Orleans. However, he's still worth consideration around the snake area of the first and second rounds.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham builds rapport with QB

Mon, 08 Jun 2015 06:43:12 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham said he has an accelerated learning curve with QB Russell Wilson. "Honestly me and Russ have been on kind of this accelerated learning curve," Graham said. "He just gets it up and gives you an opportunity to be great. We'll be keep working on that, and we'll be just fine come the season, because that's a big thing. That's all about the connection, that's all about knowing what each other is going to do and what each other likes."

Fantasy Tip: Graham will probably not catch as many balls in Seattle because of the toned-down offense in contrast to New Orleans. However, he'll still be a monster in the red zone. Graham is one of the best two tight ends but probably shouldn't be taken in the first round this year.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham making impact

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 18:23:58 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham has been "unstoppable" during organized team activities, according to Rob Rang of Scout.com. The Seahawks have already been drawing up plays to capitalize on Graham's talents.

Fantasy Tip: Graham is likely to see a reduction from the 138 targets he has averaged per season over the last four years, but he represents a greatly needed red zone threat in the Seattle offense. Graham should still be considered the best tight end not named Rob Gronkowski.

Seahawks | Russell Wilson, Jimmy Graham absent

Tue, 26 May 2015 09:58:27 -0700

Seattle Seahawks QB Russell Wilson and TE Jimmy Graham were not at the first day of the team's organized team activities Tuesday, May 26, in order to attend the funeral of Graham's personal manager in Florida. QBs B.J. Daniels and R.J. Archer are the only quarterbacks at the OTAs with Wilson gone, and neither have taken a snap in an NFL game.

Seahawks | Jimmy Graham to work on blocking

Sun, 03 May 2015 06:47:41 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham is committed to learning to block since he was traded to the Seahawks, according to offensive line coach Tom Cable.

Fantasy Tip: Graham will still be one of the team's top receiving threats, but he would be on the field more often if he becomes a better blocker. Graham should be one of the first tight ends selected in fantasy drafts next season.

Dolphins | Jimmy Graham almost went to Miami

Tue, 24 Mar 2015 12:02:13 -0700

Seattle Seahawks TE Jimmy Graham was almost a Miami Dolphin as the Dolphins finished second to the Seahawks in an attempt to trade for the tight end.

Fantasy Tip: The Dolphins ended up with Jordan Cameron after failing to sign Graham. Cameron should be targeted frequently in Miami as the Dolphins have lost three receivers in Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline and Brandon Gibson this offseason.

Seahawks | Seattle acquires Jimmy Graham

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 12:46:58 -0700

New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham was traded to the Seattle Seahawks along with a fourth-round pick in exchange for C Max Unger and a first-round pick.

Fantasy Tip: Grahame will still be an elite pass-catching tight end in the Seattle offense in 2015. He should once again be near the top of your draft board at the tight-end position this fall.
